three which is good news by the president. has had romney up most of the other polling polling times however when asked are you definitely going to vote for your guy? definitely 43% in the rasmussen poll say yes for romney only 42 for barack obama. i believe if mitt romney does well and can sting the president like ronald reagan stung jimmy carter that he will immediately become the frontrunner and the so-called swings states will tighten up. most of them anyway. florida particularly will. that's my analysis right now. >> i think these state races probably will tighten but that's what happens in the final weeks of a campaign. races tend to tighten. this will be a closer race in all likelihood as we get closer to election day one senses though that look an incumbent running with a record like this with the economy in such serious shape many people predicting recession with all this trouble he he has been having overseas, with all of that he he ought to be in a lot of trouble. it's surprising to many people that he is ahead. we keep thinking something will happen. is he is not a great politician but seems honorable and decent enough man that if the people were ready to make a change they would not have a lot o

only one who's saying that these polls suggest that governor romney is winning. please tell me how you arrive at that. >> sure. well, karl rove i think has some thoughts like that. let me go through it. what's going on now is these polls are assuming that you have the same high level of african american, latino and young people vote in 2012 that you had in 2008. not the normal level, which you had in '04, '00, '06 and so on. the pollsters are awaiting the data to assume you have that level. so, for example, in 2008, 14% of the vote was cast by african americans. in 2004, in all the other years, only 11% was. in 2010, only 11% was. so what the pollsters is doing is weighting up the number of black interviews, giving them more weight so that they account for 14% of the sample, not 11%. for young people, they historically have been 12% of the vote. they're weighting it up to the 18% that it was in 2008. latinos have always been 7%. they're weighting it up to 9%. they're doing so either because they're in the -- i believe misguided impression -- that the electorate of 2012 will be the

to a gallup poll last month, mitt romney enjoyed a 24-point advantage among white males nationally. last week reuters/ip sos put it at 20%. is he in danger of losing, perhaps, more of this group? >> yeah. i mean, this is part of a larger gender gap problem, the gender gap you don't hear about which is traditionally democrats have had problems wooing men just as republicans have had issues wooing women, and it gets worse among white voters and even worse among white male not college-educated voters. and so he -- but here's the thing, where do those guys matter? they matter in iowa, ohio, new hampshire, and that's why they're trying to close that gap. i'm not sure that talking about almost exclusively women's issues at their convention was the way to do that for democrats, but that's why you see, for instance, barack obama doing a radio interview. he doesn't do that many interviews, but he did one specifically in iowa about replacement refs which is, no doubt, a way to speak to that group and say i understand the things you care about. jon: yeah. and the president even sent out a twe

governor romney has quite an uphill time in this "new york times" and cbs news poll showing the nominee trailing the president by a full ten points in ohio. that is outside the margin of error. there is a solid majority of ohio voters say they think governor romney's policies will benefit the rich. only 9 percent say the middle class will be benefited. less than a third think the policies will treat everyone the same. with president obama, 8 percent say it is helping the rich and the rest divided equally. that is not good for governor romney. this comes after the secretly recorded video of governor romney, saying 47 percent feel they are owed everything by the government and they will never take "responsibility." carl cameron, the campaign dispute as lot of the numbers. >>carl: they do. they point to the fact that real clear politics has five points for an advantage when you average all the polls. the bigger dispute is how most of the public commercial polls are being continue. they argue that the sample, or the personal of democrats in the pool of voters that are surveyed, is artificia

polls are all wrong. that's not my feeling. my feeling is probably mitt romney is down a point or two. i think the debate wednesday night is crucial. how these events unfold is going to be important. >> i agree he's down a point or two. rasmussen has him down by three, which is unusual. two other factors come in to play. one is the higher level of enthusiasm among republicans, 16 points higher. secondly, the undecided vote tending to go against the incumbent. so i believe that romney can come back. i think he will. i think a lot depends on the debate wednesday night. the debate is stacked to play in romney's favor. the things romney is accusing obama of owe mismanaging the economy, fast and furious, this banghazi stuff -, that can't be rebutted. what obama is accusing romney of, being a tax cheat, swiss bank accounts, all that kind of stuff, can be rebutted. >> sean: what obama will say -- thus this will be mostly on the economy. obama will say, it's getting better. that was the recovery summer of 2010. >> but romney -- there were a whole lot of people right now who want to vote for romn
